works great!

Remember to get the replacement eyepiece to go with it. I love mine, it's much more functional then the standard one that came with my D300.

Nice item

By

from Mesa,AZ  -  Semi-Professional

I bought this eyepiece to use on an older Nikon FM3A 35mm film camera. To use it, unscrew the round diopter lens at the viewfinder and install this item between the diopter lens and the viewfinder. Screw the diopter lens back in tightly and check it from time to time as constant camera usage 'could' result in the rubber eyepiece loosening the diopter lens. You don't want to lose these pieces, so checking them occasionally is a good idea. However, mine is screwed in tightly and has shown no signs of loosening with much camera handling.

Perfect fit

This is an original part and fits perfectly. Be sure to securely screw in in!

Works fine but no instructions

By

from Washington DC  -  Semi-Professional

You sort of have to figure this one out, because it comes with no instructions. The way I think it works is that the rubber cup is held by the original screw-in type viewfinder.

Well made eye cup

Great fit and finish, necessary for those who wear glasses,and those of us who photograph in the Southwest, with harsh lighting is the reality......

Sturidier than Original

By

from Sedona, AZ  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Seems to work a bit better than the original (1977) version. A bit stiffer, which is good, yet flips up easily to open the camera back.

I doubt I'll use an SLR without an eyecup ever again.

At Last! A D-300 Eyecup!

By

from Scott Depot, WV  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Used with the replacement eyepiece finder for the FE, you can now have an eyecup on your D-300 rather than the one that came with the camera. Unfortunately, the replacement eyepiece finder easily unscrews (especially while carrying the camera) with the result that the eyecup is lost. I bought two just to be on the safe side.

TANDY H  Will this fit my Nikon F3??
CATHERINE W  I purchased this eyepiece to fit my FE body. You could possibly contact Nikon for historical data concerning your F3 body and what eyepiece would fit.
Shopper  I bought this for a Nikon FM camera and can not seem to get it attached. How does it clip on?
EUGENE W  Hi, Here's the best method I've found to attach the eyecup to my FM3a. Turn the black plastic ring of the eyepiece counterclockwise to unscrew it from the body. (This piece has 0 diopter correction, but can be replaced with a +/- diopter correction for the near/far sighted.) Call the glass surface of the eyepiece nearer to its ring the "outer" surface (the surface that faces your eye when you look through the eyepiece). Place the rubber eyecup with smaller end down on a desk. Remove any lens on the camera body, insert the body cap, and place the camera body on the desk nearby with the front facing down (body cap resting on the desk). Drop the eyepiece into the eyecup with the outer surface facing up. Level the eyepiece in the eyecup if necessary. Pick up the eyecup at the larger opening. The threads of the eyepiece should be showing below the smaller opening. Place the eyecup on the camera body so that the the eyepiece threads are in the "hole" where the eyepiece goes. I'm not sure if it makes any difference, but I rest the eyecup so that the half-circular plastic ring of the eye cup is oriented upside down (like an upside down wide U) when the camera is held at the eye. Now with your thumb and first finger of one hand, turn the eyepiece's ring clockwise until the eyepiece is fully screwed into the camera body while holding the eyecup's plastic ring with the other hand so that the ring remains oriented upside down when the eyepiece is fully attached. If you don't care how the ring is oriented when done, you don't have to hold the eye cup ring while attaching the eyepiece. That's it. If you brush against the rubber eyecup (as when trying to remove the camera from a camera case, the eyecup easily separates from its ring. Thus, you may have to repeat this procedure until you learn to avoid brushing against the eyecup. Good luck! I hope this helps.
